I came across a book a little while ago that demonstrated torch firing of enamels on brass beads. A fellow classmate at FIT was already doing a version of torch firing enamel and he gave me some materials with which to experiment. I made a few small tests but didn't have a real application until I started work on a tiara with fold formed leaves and flowers. This was a perfect way for me to add color to go along with the gold leaves and black and white pearls. If you use a heavier gauge metal, you will need a bigger torch, after making this bench top video, I moved on to an acetylene torch and the work went a little faster.
